Autumn is in full swing and our site crews have been busy erecting steel across North America. Here are pictures and information about Supermétal's 5 major projects in Boston, Quebec City, Calgary and Vancouver.
Girders at MIT Site 3 - Boston, MA
All 10 massive girders have now been installed on the 7th floor of the MIT – Site 3 project. The Girders were erected with a 1600 ton crawler crane! Girders weigh 180,000 lbs each and were fabricated in Supermetal's Sherbrooke, QC plant.
400 West Georgia Office Tower - Vancouver, BC
We are now entering the complex sequences of erection! Supermétal's Construction Division is erecting the 7th floor and beginning the cantilevered box installation.
The 25-story 400 W. Georgia office tower requires 4500MT of steel and anticipates topping out in 2Q of 2020. The 301 ft tall iconic building will include living green walls, offset stacked cubes with glass floors, enabling views of the streets below.

Across the street from Supermétal's award winning New Central Library project, the new Platform Parkade will be adaptable to accommodate retail and commercial spaces as time will demand. In addition to fabrication and erection of the structure, Supermétal provided stability analysis, erection procedures, temporary bracing design and alternative ramp design.
